'Tejas' Kangana Ranaut reports for duty in new still; film to take-off in December

Kangana Ranaut is ready to take to the skies with her next film ‘Tejas’.

Taking to her social media handle, the actress announced that her ambitious project will officially take off this December. Getting fans hyped and excited about the same, she dropped a new still that saw her in her Air force pilot’s uniform, proudly standing beside her jet Tejas.

Calling the film an ode to all the brave airforce pilots, the actress wrote, “#Tejas to take-off this December! Airplane Proud to be part of this exhilarating story that is an ode to our brave airforce pilots! Jai Hind Flag of India.”

Back in February, Kangana shared the first look poster of her film and announced that she will be portraying the role of IAF pilot. The film reportedly takes inspiration from the Indian Air Force’s landmark decision to induct women into combat roles in 2016.

“I hope we instil a sense of patriotism and pride in the youth of today with this movie,” the actress said in a statement.

Besides this film, Kangana is also awaiting the release of her film ‘Thalaivi’, a biopic on Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa. She is also expected to begin work on her period drama ‘Aparajitha Ayodhya’ that will reportedly span across six centuries.
